Grilled Salmon with Pesto


Spring is in the air, and I'm ready for some lighter fare. Grilled Salmon with Pesto is just what I had in mind. When properly cooked, salmon is luxurious and needs very little to make me swoon. I seasoned the fish with salt and pepper and grilled it for a few minutes on each side. When ready, I garnished the fillets with spoonfuls of my favorite parsley pesto—a perfectly delicious main course to celebrate the upcoming season.
